The Sleeping Girl by Tamara de Lempicka
Tamara de Lempicka was born in 1898 in Warsaw, which was then part of the Russian Empire. Born into a wealthy family, Maria Gorska as she was named by her parents, was educated at a boarding school in Switzerland.
Lempicka very much saw herself as one of the elite, famous and successful. Her choices of successful spouses and the celebrity portraits she painted showed her role in the glamour of the age and even after the roaring 20s.
In fact, even to this day she is well known in art collector circles and the distinctive artworks of ‘The Baroness with a brush’ hold a firm place in the art market.
